Legal advisor and researcher Khaled Al-Mazmi said: Insulting and slander through social media programs is considered a severe penalty, according to Article 43 of Federal Decree-Law No. (34) of 2021 regarding the Law on Combating Rumors and Electronic Crimes, and is punishable by imprisonment and a fine of not less than 250 thousand dirhams and no more than 500 thousand dirhams, or one of these two penalties, for anyone who insults the other or ascribes to him an incident that would make him subject to punishment or contempt by others, using an information network or information technology means.

Al-Mazmi added: If the insult or slander is committed against a public employee or assigned to a public service on the occasion or because of the performance of his work, this is considered an aggravating circumstance for the crime, pointing to the ease of proving cybercrime.

He noted that the aggrieved party has the right to claim compensation for the damage incurred in accordance with Article 282 of the Civil Transactions Law, as every damage to the other obligates the perpetrator, even if he is not discerning, to guarantee the damage.
